To Douche or Not To Douche, That is the Question

I get so much EWCM when I am fertile, it just feels gross if I don't
keep really clean "down there". I've heard douching hurt
s fertility. Is
that true?

You've heard right. Studies show that douching decreases your odds
of conceiving by 30%. (I got this stat from The Mother of All
Pregnancy Books by Ann Douglas). Douchers (sorry) are also at
increased risk for pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic
pregnancies. Bad times.

I don't recommend douching whether or not your are TTC. If you have
loads of EWCM (and lots of women reading this site WISH they had
that problem) you could always wear a panty liner during your fertile
period to feel more comfortable.
